Michael Boll, father to a son with autism and CSNLG team member, talks with attorney Linaja Murray about what parents can do to prepare for an IEP meeting.
Attorney and Advocate, BA, MA, JD
The call to advocate and protect the educational rights of students with special needs comes from different places. For Linaja, her stepson’s autism diagnoses ignited her drive to take every special education course and clinic offered during her time at Pepperdine law school.
Linaja leveraged her transformed understanding of special education law to successfully win independent evaluations for her stepson and develop an individualized education program (IEP) that genuinely addresses his unique needs.
Linaja understands our “solution-focused” core value and works to cultivate healthy relationships between families and educators while obtaining needed services for students.
Linaja also practices estate planning law with an emphasis in special needs planning, trusts and limited conservatorships.
